Byng House // Cambridge, ON

Bridging the union between contemporary and traditional design.

With Byng House, a renovation and extension of a historic home, the intersection between contemporary and traditional design becomes a space for celebration.

Joining the heritage home and its new modern extension, a glass courtyard allows a clear line of sight into both structures, along with views out to the private side-yards. Following the original roof line, the moment of intersection is pinched so rainwater flows down to small gardens on either side of the addition. Update the text.
